Manuals: 2
Ranks: 11
Action: Mechanical

Notes: This small instrument was built for the Temple Zion of Jerusalem in Appleton in 1907. Subsequent use of the synagogue as a church and museum kept the organ in public view until 1990. The Outagamie County Historical Society arranged for the sale of the instrument to Lawrence University in 1996. In 1999, Wahl Organbuilders installed the organ in the rear balcony of the Memorial Chapel. Two new stops were added, the bellows and feeders were releathered, and a modern, silent blower installed. The instrument can still be pumped by hand, as was done on its inaugural recital. New facade stenciling was painted by Wahl Organbuilders patterned after a Hutchings design. The 1247 seat auditorium also boasts a modern, eclectic instrument on the stage in front, allowing the opportunity to perform works for two organs and choir. The organ is now ready for its second century in a teaching environment where even more people can hear these historic sounds.
